Why would you have to turn “safe search” on immediately, it’s the default setting? Didn’t want the grandkids seeing what you were searching for? Just another hypocrite who needs saving. My moral compass is just fine.
—Why would you have to turn safe search on immediately, its the default setting? Didnt want the grandkids seeing what you were searching for? Just another hypocrite who needs saving. My moral compass is just fine.—I get the feeling you are just looking for an argument. Don’t get me wrong. I understand the feeling. Let me be really clear here:
The default (for firefox, at least) is moderate. With that you will get bathing suit shots, and soft pr0n. But a lot (I mean, a LOT) of dads out there have modified it to “off”. Frankly, I did because some of the NON-sex related stuff I was looking for a few years ago was getting filtered out.
But to go WAY back, I used to be the “Computer guru” with my circle of friends in an AG church in the 90’s. Every now and again someone would ask me to fix their computer problem. Often it was storage space problems and clearing out unwanted data and defragging was all that was needed. Even on a church deacon’s computer I searched for all files over a certain size and sorted them by type, and the number of xxx jpg’s that filtered to the top was shocking.
Actually, if you want to get a feel for what’s going on, watch the movie, Middle Men. It is not as graphic as you would think and really nails the point home regarding computers in the US. I used to go to computer meets back in the day and every single time the most popular booth was the one where they sold x-rated cd’s and, when they came out, DVD’s. It’s what got movie rentals off the ground as well (VHS).
Sure, YOU may be ok. And I may be OK, but most men (I mean the GROSS MAJORITY) are not. We are imperfect creatures and daily temptation takes its toll unless you are a unich.
And kids use dad’s computer often. And teenagers are no better.

I visited my wife’s university in 1998. She commented on all the boys being up really late in the computer lab doing school work. Then I flew out to the place to visit.
She showed me the computer lab, and I noticed a lot of computers in the back of the room with the screen facing the back wall. I asked if that was where they were sitting. She said yes. I then went to a random computer, went into the IE cashe, and sorted the files by size. All the big JPG’s sorted to the top and the files had names like “Hot babe in panties”. Each file also had a download date. They were all pulled from the web at the times the boys were doing “homework”. I opened one and my wife (then girlfriend) freaked out. She was mortified.
She complaned to the school and their take was “boys will be boys”. Well, those boys are now in their early 30’s and represent that generation.
Oh, and it was a Catholic school.
